Successful graduates from a drug and alcohol recovery program run by the Bay Area Rescue Mission will go through a 6-month work transition program at the Internet Archive. The work transition program will teach formerly unemployed individuals the skills, habits and behaviors that will become part of a work history for each person. Successful graduates of this â€˜healthy living - work transitionâ€ program, will then be eligible to interview and then, hopefully secure jobs with national and local employers who are a part of this program. If this pilot is successful, the program will continue past the two-year point and scale across California and the US.
